[applause] thank you. i think julia needs to be accustomed to applause and recognition. this is the perfect segway from my mother's speech earlier. she talked about the unfinished business for women and girls here in the united states. perhaps, nowhere is that more clear than in the field of science, technology, engineering and math. sadly, there is an arena that girls and women have lost ground in the united states. in the mid 1980's, about the same time i got my first computer for christmas. girls were at least 35% of the computer science graduates. in 2006, that dropped down to 20% and last year it was 12%. clea

about. there is no big mystery, the science is clear and cut and dried. what can you do about it? there is no big mystery, we need to stop building fossil fueled plants. what is the problem, dad? and that is actually where the conversation gets really complicated. because basically, global warming is not a technical problem it is not a science problem it is a political problem and that is why fossil fuel divestment is really perhaps the most important thing that we can do. that is why we have a global warming problem not because we don't understand the science, but because there are vested interests that are fighting to maintain the status quo, i think that this board, if it really cares about climate change and i know that you do, you can't but help to move to divestment. so, i think that you guys are asking really great questions about what is the smart way to make that divestment happen and i hope that you pursue that so it can happen thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> next speaker? >> if you heard your name called, if you could line up along the wi

"our relations with china will be affected. our relations with japan will be affected. japan is coming out of a period where it's now reconsidering nuclear power, but if it has to consider a nuclear north korea it also has to think about weapons." professor pinnell believes it will take a few years for north korea to develop a weapon capable of reaching the united states.... the more immidiate threat is to nations closer to the rogue cournty. "because they're more directly in the so called line of fire than we are at this point. and if their reaction is 'ok now we need to think about a nuclear deterrent' that's the bigger issue." sjsu professor karthika sasikumar has a different perspective "i think the severity of the threat is really what a war could do to the international economy, which

of science wasn't until 1804 that anybody had the idea that clouds form any consistent patterns at all. if you are skeptical about this, some time in an art museum go and look at judge landscape art which is the most meticulous the beautiful renderings of the physical world you will ever see. the landscape is perfectly rendered and the clouds are just a mass of chaos in painting after painting. nobody had any idea that clouds formed distinctive shapes. you would think it would be the most obvious thing in the world but no one thought of it. as far as i know the first person to think of it was moved howard, an amateur meteorologist in england who in 1804 gave a lecture which presented the idea there were nine kinds of clouds and he named them and all of the names he used are the names we use now. cirrus and cumulus and stratus. he invented those names out of nothing. they go back to ancient greece, based in scientific greek, but no one used those terms before. we tend to think they are as old as the hills but they went back to this one guy and we still use his term than he was the first

to talk about some of the math that is involved. it is easy to get kind of bogged down in the science of climate change but there is super math that we can boil this down to. the scientific consensus is that global warming f it exceeds 2 degrees c, it will have catastrophic consequences for all habitats across the globe. almost every government has agreed through the copenhagen accord and we have raised the temperature by 0.8 degrees c which has caused more damage than scientists expected. the sea ice has declined by a third and the acidity of the ocean has increased by 30 percent and we are seeing dramatic climate events that happen every year. to prevent 2 degrees of c of warming we can burn no more than 656 giga tons of carbon dioxide and that is a billion. fossil fuel corporations currently have 2800 giga tons in their reserves, so comparing 565 to the total reserve is 2800 giga tons and that means that we need to keep 80 percent of the current fossil fuel reserves in the ground. if we do not do that, we will see the dramatic increases in temperatures and we know what will happen
